I thought this was an interesting read and if some of this stuff worked like the scenarios claim, it would be helpful in real life situations.

Electronic Surveillance In General Whether it be a CCTV camera, or a body scanner, sometimes the best option is not to evade or disguise, but to pull the plug entirely. At least, that was James’ point of view after the control grid went into overdrive and he couldn’t walk his dog without a blue-shirted Swedish agent fondling him on the sidewalk or forcing him to stroll through a body scanner. Finally, he had had enough, and so, decided that if they wanted to track every move of every person, it was going to cost them. Using commonly available parts, James built a personal EMP device. Its range was dependent on the size of the power supply he tied to it, but when used properly, it would zap anything with a circuit within several feet of him: www.amazing1.com... The Body Scanners were useless. RFID tags went blank. CCTV cameras shorted. They would eventually be replaced, but the cost would be high, and as long as he didn’t get caught, James could experience, at least for a short time, the America of the past…

GPS Tracking
She realized that she may have a GPS tracking device implanted somewhere in her car, and to find it quickly would be impossible. Thankfully, she had purchased a GPS jamming device months ago, which allowed her to block any GPS transmissions within a small to medium radius. The device was furiously labeled by the FCC as “dangerous” and “illegal to use”, however, they remained very easy to buy until the crash:

Anyone have an extra $16,200 they can lend me? I have GOT to have one of those RAIL GUNS!


The EMP devices are sweet too, and could come in handy for home, or even neighborhood, defense.

If you could extend the range on those EMP devices, it would be perfect for the coming drone invasion

I buy stuff from amazing1 all the time, and it's a totally cool source of parts to noodle around with, but they can't sell anything with enough output to be a serious threat. Well other than to the builder if you don't follow safety protocols, and only work on dead circuits etc...


I saw an EMP device one time capable of making the screen glitch on an old 286NX computer. It had to be 3 inches away, and it had to be powered by 770V mains, and used a ballast, and a huge transformer. Made the lights in the house dim too, but only made the old computer glitch, no shut down, no permanent damage other than a burn mark on the inner case because the outter case provided enough shielding to render it useless again. It also had to be aimed practically point blank at the component you wished to frazzle.

With current technology it's still easier and uses less energy to just vaporize the whole house, or vehicle attached to an electronic component than to wipe it out with an EMP pulse. Ever hear the stories of secret EMP devices that can knock out a car? Bunk, it's been tried, and it's abysmally ineffective. The few videos out there of one working are a few 1 in 1000 shots that accidentally worked, on an old car with an unsheilded computer, and they lucked out, and hit the PCM case with the little bolt they use. An EMP capable of knocking out the PCM in your car from a distance of 100 feet would glow bright enough to be seen from space. Your car's body is metal, providing a nice shield, then most PCMs have an additional case around them isolated from the ground plane of the car's body, essentially double shielding. My car got hit by lightning one time, and never even missfired, the computer was oblivious that anything happened at all, and that's a massive EMP field around a lighting bolt. The car's body dissipated the charge without incident, except for the soilage of undergarments. It would take a nuclear explosion at a fairly close distance to knock out a car reliably from any considerable distance via EMP, but then your car konking out wouldn't be much of a concern anymore then would it?

EMP tech is a toy, a cool one, and one that might someday become weaponized, but not for a long time. Maybe when someone discovers a way to extend the range of the Lorentz force without massive power consumption...
